There were a lot of spectators that were enthusiastic with the new event in Paraguay, which is a really interesting edition for many reasons.

It is very important to know that everybody can work here in the best way possible and that there is a really efficient collaboration between the Dakar Series organization and the national institutions” pointed out the Rally Dakar Director during the first racing days.
